7:45 am
announcement that he's gay. jason collins is the first athlete to come out while playing in a major professional support. he opened up in a personal essay he wrote for "sports illustrated." the boston bombings prompted him to come out politically because life, he says, can change in an instant. so far he's getting a lot of support. >> i think it's fantastic that she's taking such a positive and influential role. >> he's a free agent center for the washington wizards. there are new reports a southern california woman is planning to file a multi- million dollar loft after last year's hun ta virus at -- jan
7:46 am
janta virus at yosemite park. three park visitors died and three others got sick. it also shut down parts of curry village. leave your backpacks and large backs at home. that's the message to those coming to the beta breakers race in san francisco next month. this change is in response to the boston marathon bombers. security staff will be turning away anyone not formally registered for the race which is on may 19th. we talked to san francisco's supervisor yemen lee yee who says he supports this -- norman yee who supports this. >> i think it's a great idea. if those two brothers got away with it in boston, anybody can get away with it. >> police greg suhr says extra police officers will be monitoring the course and some of them will be dressed in
7:47 am
costumes. happening right now, president obama is speaking at a news conference at the white house. let's listen in. >> a couple of questionsen national security. on syria, you said that the redline was not just about chemical weapons being used or spread and it was a game changer. it seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be indicating that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you do not take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors who want to come forward and testify, some in your state statement who said they've been blocked. will you allow them to testify? >> first of all, on syria, i think it's important to understand that for several years now what we've been seeing a slowly unfolding disaster for the syrian people.
7:48 am
and this is not a situation in which we've been simply bystanders to what's been happening. by policy -- by policy from the beginning has been -- my policy from the beginning has been that president assad lost credibility, that he attacked his own people, has killed his own people, unleashed a military against innocent civilians and that the only way to bring stability and peace to syria will be for assad to step down and to move forward on a political transition. in pursuit of that tragedy, we've organized the international community. we are the largest humanitarian donor. we've worked to strengthen the on possession. we've -- opposition. we've applied sanctions on syria. so there are a whole host of steps we've been taking precisely because even separate from the chemical weapons
7:49 am
issue, what's happening in syria is a blemish on the international community generally and we've gotta make sure we're doing everything we can to protect the vir reian people -- syrian people. in that context what i've also said is the u.s. of chemical weapons would be a game changer. not only for the united states but for the international community. the reason for that, we've established international law that says when you use these types of weapons you have the potential of killing mass numbers of people in the most inhumane way hospital and the proliferationics are so significant, we don't want that jeanne out of the bottle. so that was not a position unique to the united states and it shouldn't have been a surprise, when i said that. what we now have is evidence
7:50 am
that chemical weapons have been used inside of syria but we don't know how they were used, when they were used, who used them. we don't have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened and when i am making decisions about america's national security and the potential for taking additional action in response to chemical weapon use, i've gotta make sure i got the facts. that's what the american people would expect. and if we end up rushing to judgment without hard, perspective evidence, then we can find ourselves in the position where we can't mobilize the international community to support what we do. there may be objections even among some in the region who are sympathetic to the opposition if we take action.
7:51 am
so it's important for us to do this in a prudent way. what i've said to my team is we've gotta do everything we can to investigate and establish with some certainty what exactly has happened in syria, what is happening in syria, we will use all of the assets and resources we use at our disposal. we'll work with the neighboring countries to see whether we can establish a clear base line of facts and we've also called on the united nations to investigate. the important point i want to make here is we already are deeply engaged to bring about a solution in syria. it's a difficult problem but even if chemical weapons were not being used in syria, we still be thinking about tens of thousands of people, innocent civil ups, women, children, killed by a regime more concerned about staying in
7:52 am
power than it is about the well being of its people. so we are already deeply invested in trying to find a solution here. what's true, though, is that if i can establish in a way that not only the united states but also the international community feel confident is the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime, then that's a game changer because what that portends is potentially even more devastating attacks on civilians and it raises the strong possibility that those chemical weapons can fall in the wrong hands and get disseminated in ways that would threat the u.s. security. >> by game changer you mean the u.s. allies? >> i mean we could have to rethink the range of options that are available to us.
7:53 am
we're already -- as i said we're already invested in trying to bring back a -- a solution inside of syria. obviously, there are options that are available to me that are on the self-right now that we've not -- shelf right now that we've not deployed. that's a spectrum of options as early as last year, i asked the pentagon, our military, our intelligence officials to prepare for me what options might be available. and i won't go into the details of what the options might be but, you know, clearly that would be an escalation in our view of the threat to if the security of the international community, our allies, and the united states and that means that there's omoptions that we might -- options that we might not otherwise exercise that we would strongly consider.
7:54 am
and on the benghazi story, there are people in your state department who are saying they've been blocked from coming forward. they survived the attack and want to come forward. >> i'm not aware of anyone being blocked. so i will find out what it is that you are efreferring to. what -- referring to. what i've been very clear about from the start is our job with respect to benghazi is to find out exactly what happened, to make sure that u.s. embassies not just in the middle east but around the world are secure. but i will find out what you are referring to. >> they have hired an attorney because they said they are being blocked -- >> i'm not farm with that. jessica -- familiar with that.
7:55 am
>> jessica? >> that's's reports that you've ordered a broad review of all of the jens gathering prior to the attack -- intelligence gathering prior to the attack. there's senators that say there's still not enough intelligence shared prior to the attack and now lindsey graham has said that benghazi and boston are both examples of the u.s. going back. is he right or did our intelligence miss something? >> no, mr. graham is not right on this issue. i'm sure it generated some headlines. i think that what we saw in boston was -- was state, local, federal officials, every agency rallying around a city that had been attacked. identifying the perpetrators
7:56 am
just hours after the scene had been examined. we now have one individual deceased, one in custody. charges have been brought. i think that all of our law enforcement officials performed in an exemplary fashion after the bombing had taken place and we should be very proud of their work as we're proud of the people in boston, the first responders and the mel personnel that helped save lives. what we also know that is -- is that the russian intelligence services had alerted u.s. intelligence about the older brother as well as the mother indicating that they might be sympathizers to extremists. the fbi investigated that older brother. it's not as if the fbi did
7:57 am
nothing. they not only investigated the older brother, they interviewed the older brother. they concluded that there were no signs when he was engaging in extremist activity. that much we know. and the question, then, is was there something that happened that triggered radicalization and actual -- and an actual decision bike the brother to engage in the -- by the brother to engage in the attack in boston. and are there additional things that could have been done in the interim that might have prevented them. now what director clamper is doing this standard procedure around here, which is when an event like this happens we want to go back and review every step taken, we want to lead no stone unturned. we want to see if, is there, in fact, additional protocols and procedures that could be put in place that would further
7:58 am
improve and enhance our ability to protect a potential attack. we don't know that until that review is completed. we won't know that until the actual crime is fully completed. that's still ongoing. but what i can say is that based on what i've seen so far, the fbi performed its duties, the department of homeland security did what it was supposed to be doing. but this is hard stuff. and i've said from -- for quite some time that because of the pressure that we've put on al qaeda, because of the pressure that we've put on these networks that are well-financed and more sophisticated and -- and can engage in and project
7:59 am
threats against the united states, one of the dangers that we now face are self- radicalized individuals who are already here in the united states, in some cases may not be part of any kind of network. but because of whatever warped, twisted, ideas they may have may decide to carry out an attack. and those are in some ways more difficult to prevent and so what i've done for months now is to indicate to our entire counterterrorism team. what more can we do on that threat that is looming on the horizon. are there more things that we can do whether it's engaging in -- engaging with communities where there is a potential for self-radicalization of this sort is there work that can be done in terms of detection?
8:00 am
but all of this has to be done in the context of our laws, due process and so part of what director clamper is doing is gonna be to see if we can determine any lessons learned from what happened. >> are -- >> you've been listening live to president obama live in washington, d.c. in the white house. this was a press conference announced this morning. he's been discussing syria, talking about the -- slowly unfolding disaster. he was specifically about whether the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. he said, yes. we do know we have evidence that chemical weapons have been used but we don't know who used them and then talk about the -- talking about the investigation into the bombings. he praised the investigation as swift and said the fbi looks like it's been doing a good job but they are still gonna be taking steps to make sure everything is done to improve

8:05 am
